Tonga Tsunami Relief Appeal

Having provided veterinary services to the Tongan Government for the past 12 years,  South Pacific Animal Welfare (SPAW) is very aware that the devastation caused by the tsunami on 14 January 2022 will require our support in the weeks and months ahead.

We are working with the Tongan Government to assess need, ensuring we can send them what they need to provide emergency relief to animals living on affected islands. This is likely to include the provision of antibiotics, pain medications, antiseptics and livestock provisions. 

100% of funds raised from our Tonga Tsunami Relief Appeal will go directly to benefit the animals of Tonga.

Please consider a donation, even the smallest amount helps.
